Does the stake.addr ever need to be copied back over to the block producer from the cold environment?
If not, once I mint a block, will I be able to successfully run this command on my block producer?
cardano-cli query stake-address-info \ --address $(cat stake.addr) \ --mainnet
Currently I cannot run this command because my stake pool has not minted any blocks or received any rewards. Perhaps only after I receive rewards can I run this?
My stake.addr was generated originally in my air-gapped cold environment using the CLI method.
cardano-cli stake-address build \ --stake-verification-key-file stake.vkey \ --out-file stake.addr \ --mainnet
My payment.addr was obviously generated and then copied back to my hot environment, but I just want to double check regarding checking rewards as things move forward. This is how my payment.addr was generated.
cardano-cli address build \ --payment-verification-key-file payment.vkey \ --stake-verification-key-file stake.vkey \ --out-file payment.addr \ --mainnet
